Rehabilitation Residential Services

St. Doolagh’s Park is a specialist rehabilitation centre that provides residential rehabilitation for people with acquired brain injury.

We have developed two programmes;

  1. Specialist Residential Brain Injury Rehabilitation
  2. Person-Centred Long Term Care


Both of these have achieved international accreditation from CARF (http://www.carf.org/home/) recognising the quality and outcomes of the service.

St. Doolagh’s Park provides a high quality, specialised assessment and rehabilitation service for people with cognitive, physical and/or emotional symptoms following an acquired brain injury.

SMART Goals

An individual’s rehabilitation programme is based around SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely) developed with them and the multidisciplinary team. The programme will include a combination of individual and group activities.

The focus is on enabling residents to function as independently as possible, develop their lives as they choose and to participate in as many of their previous roles and activities as possible. Ultimately, the aim is to enable service users to participate in life as fully and as independently as possible.
